Hanover Day Performers

June 29, 2009

This was probably out of date before I posted it, but what the heck . . .

We couldn’t possibly pay for the range of talent we get on Hanover Day, so we’re really grateful that so many agree to perform for the minimal expenses we offer. We’re still waiting to hear if some great acts are available. And, of course, we can’t guarantee that those we know about will be able to come on the day.

This year, 6 sound stages will showcase a stunning range of local talent, including (probably):

  • The Dates
  • The Diablos
  • Tim Squire
  • Redeemers
  • Senior Service
  • The Creaking Chair
  • Dr Pump
  • Sweet Charlotte
  • Bethlehem Slouch
  • Slimshack
  • Friday Night Heros
  • Mamaloshn
  • Tom Nancarrow
  • Rob Abbott
  • Mel’s  all Stars
  • Drookit Dogs
  • Coast Line Harmony Choir
  • Kate’s Kitchen Band
  • Mr Eugine
  • Brighton Morris Men

And young bands:

  • Ro Ocean
  • Perry Hutchinson
  • Error
  • Crowd Control

And a few surprises we are still trying to secure. Should be a great day!


Ease into Hanover Day with HanFest

June 29, 2009

HanFest is our mini music festival, this year on Saturday 4th July from 5pm to 10pm in the Hanover Centre garden.

Food, drink and excellent music in the great outdoors – ideal for those of us who couldn’t get to Glastonbury!

Get the line-up on the HanFest page. See you there!

Independent Hanover

June 18, 2009

Hanover declares the People’s Republic on July 5th – Hanover Independence Day!

To join our rebellion you only need to get a Hanover passport. PassportThe passport not only identifies you as a loyal citizen, it also entitles you to all the advantages of citzenship. Chief among the advantages are discounts at local pubs and other businesses worth more than the cost of the passport!

Passports will be available right up to 6pm on Hanover day. If you leave your contact details with the seller, you will be entered into a draw for prizes, including tickets to the BeachDown festival.

Passports cost £2 wherever you see this poster:

Hanover Day Approaches!

June 4, 2009

Things are hotting up as we get closer to Hanover Day, so we’ve decided to meet weekly.

There are more decisions to make and we want to keep everyone involved. Money is very tight, so we have to take special care over spending decisions. So we have moved from fortnightly to weekly meetings until July.

If you want to get involved, we meet every Thursday at the Hanover Centre from 7.00pm to 8.00pm. Go through the garden, up the back stairs, and press the buzzer marked ‘Meeting Room’. The meetings are short and entertaining.

The poster (again)

June 4, 2009

Some people had difficulty downloading the poster – it was too big and took too long – so we have replaced it with an equally lovely but more compact download.

If you can print and display it, we would be really grateful!
